David Anderson's Histories of the Hanged is the first full account of the guerrilla war that determined who should inherit Britain's most troublesome African colony.

The Tiananmen Papers
2001. 1st Edition, Hard Cover. Fine/Very Good. The Tiananmen Papers.Andrew Nathan, Ed. 2001. Hardcover, 510 pages. Fine/Very Good. A very clean, smart copy. Tightly bound, unmarked pages, jacket has very light shefwear to top edge. THE TIANANMEN PAPERS, which contains documents unearthed from the guarded core of the Chinese Politburo, is the most important book on China published in decades. It reveals the highest-level processes of decision-making during the tumultuous events surrounding the terrible massacre in Tiananmen Square on 4 June 1989. Drawn from about 2,000 documents, THE TIANANMEN PAPERS have been compiled and edited as part of an extraordinary collaboration between America's most prominent China scholars and a handful of Chinese people who have risked their lives to obtain them. The Chinese pro-democracy demonstrations in 1989 were the longest lasting and most influential in the world. THE TIANANMEN PAPERS exposes the desperate conflict during the period among a few strong leaders, whose personalities emerge with unprecedented vividness. Its revelations of the most important event in modern Chinese history will have a profound impact not only in China, but in every country in the world that deals with China. Quantity Available: 1.

 EVGENII V. ANISIMOV, The Reforms of Peter the Great
EVGENII V. ANISIMOV
The Reforms of Peter the Great
Routledge, 1993. First Edition, Hardcover. Very Good Condition/Very Good. 9781563240478 Top corner clipped from front endpaper, pages otherwise clean and bright; light wer to jacket edges. This exciting and psychologically penetrating account of the life and rule of Russia's eighteenth-century tsar-reformer develops an important theme. What happens when the drive for "progress" is linked to an autocratic, expansionist impulse rather than a larger goal of human emancipation? What was the price of power - for Russia, and for Peter himself? Evgenii V. Anisimov's provocative history of Peter thus asks important questions with special resonance today. 344 pages.

SOFIE BAK
Nothing to Speak Of. Wartime Experiences of the Danish Jews 1943-1945
The Danish Jewish Museum, 2014. First Edition, Softcover. Near Fine Condition/No Dust Jacket. Top corner clipped from front endpaper, otherwise clean bright and unmarked, an excellent copy. In October 1943, Adolph Hitler ordered the mass arrest of Jews in Denmark. While many Danish Jews were rounded up and deported to concentration camps, thousands fled to Sweden in one of the most successful--and famous--rescue operations of Jews in wartime Europe. Based on more than one hundred interviews, "Nothing to Speak Of" sheds new light on this rescue operation, telling the story of what happened to these survivors after October 1943. This richly illustrated volume is the first to deal with the long-term consequences of escape, exile, and deportation during this harrowing time for Danish citizens, uncovering deep and painful memories that still haunt many survivors today.

Juliet Barker's new book is a magnificently readable account of the last four decades of that war, and a reminder that the reality was much nastier than the myth...Barker disentangles the dark threads to tell a story that never flags.

 MARTIN BARNES, Benjamin Brecknell Turner: Rural England Through a Victorian Lens
MARTIN BARNES
Benjamin Brecknell Turner: Rural England Through a Victorian Lens
ABRAMS, 2001. Hardcover. Fine Condition/Near Fine. 9780810965836 Clean unmarked pages, firm binding; unclipped jacket with slight creasing to rear lower edge. A nicely-kept copy. Filled with lovely scenes of 19th-century England, this beautiful book is a nostalgic glimpse of a vanished world through the lens of Benjamin Brecknell Turner (1815 -- 1894), one of the first, and one of the greatest, of early British photographers. A tranquil stillness pervades Turner's evocative images of churches, cottages, old farm buildings, and ancient ruins. In stark contrast are his shots of the radically modern, long-gone Crystal Palace in London's Hyde Park. Also here are his subtly toned portrait photographs, and his 1857 pictures of Amsterdam that are among the earliest known photographs of that city. This first monograph on Turner's work accompanies an exhibition in early 2002 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. 112 pages. Quantity Available: 1.

DIRK BOOMS
Sicily: culture and conquest
British Museum Press, 2016. First Edition, Softcover. Near Fine Condition/Near Fine. 9780714122892 Clean bright pages, slight wear to jacket edges. This book, which accompanies the Sicily exhibition at the British Museum, contains both a visual record of the exhibition, and a scholarly text on the history and archaeology of ancient and medieval Sicily. The illustrations are beautifully reproduced and are a pleasure to look at, while the text provides a historical narrative combined with analysis of the many challenges that faced the island’s rulers. For anyone interested in the subject, this book is an essential resource. The result of four years’ collaboration between the BM with their counter-parts at the Sicilian Region’s Beni Culturali, this is a rare project, the output of which will be a reference point for years to come. As in the exhibition, the book concentrates upon the two periods of greatest achievement in Sicily, that of the Greeks (c. 734-241 BC) and the Normans (1061-1194 AD). In outline it spans some 4000 years from the earliest settlers to when the Phoenicians and Greeks established their settlements in the eighth century BC, through the eras of the Carthaginians, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs and Normans. It ends with the death of the Emperor Frederick II, who was also King of Sicily, in 1250. 288 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Category: History; ISBN/EAN: 9780714122892. Inventory No: dscf9127.

 FERNAND BRAUDEL, The Wheels of Commerce
FERNAND BRAUDEL
The Wheels of Commerce
Fontana , 1985. reprint, Softcover. Very Good Condition. 9780006860785 Slight wear to cover edges, clean bright pages with no annotations or highlighting. In the three fascinating volumes which make up 'Civilization and Capitalism', Fernand Braudel, indisputably the greatest of living historians, offers nothing less than an economic and social history of the world from the Middle Ages to the industrial Revolution. And what he offers is, like everything he writes, entirely new. In this volume he turns his attention to the markets and exchanges that, from the start, have been the real motors of change. Pedlar's merchants, fairs, market stalls, the first stock exchanges provide the human and economic subject matter. Out of this world of bargaining and bustle, of risk and disaster, of enormous wealth and dizzying success, emerges the beginning of the economic world we see around us. 670 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Category: History; ISBN/EAN: 9780006860785. Inventory No: dscf9010.
